Carpet cleaning can be a huge pain, so when you get it cleaned, you want it to stay clean for a long time. To accomplish this goal, you need to find a carpet cleaner that leaves no residue behind. Soap free cleaning is becoming the norm but not every company in Dallas does it. There is no acceptable amount of soil attracting residue that can be left behind, zero. But how do you find a no residue carpet cleaning service? Here is what you need to do.
As I said, no residue carpet cleaning is nothing new, but not every Dallas company does it. To find the good ones that leave zero soil attracting residue behind, you will need to interview them. Here are the questions that you need to ask.
- Do you use soap?
Straight to the point, ask do you use soaps and detergents. If they answer yes, move on. If they say that they use zero soap, ask what they do use and how it cleans.
- What kind of system do you use?
Hot water extraction is the industry standard. It removes the most soil and has the ability to leave the least amount of residue. Insist on a Dallas carpet cleaner that uses a truck mounted hot water extraction or steam cleaning system.
- What is included in your cleaning price?
It is not acceptable to charge extra for things that every carpet will need. Make sure your carpet cleaner includes pre-treatment and basic spot cleaning in their base price.
- Do you charge extra for any stains?
Some stains will require extra treatment at an additional cost but they should not charge extra for common stains like soda or traffic area soiling.
- Who will be doing the work?
Preferably the owner will do the work. Second best is an employee of the company. Subcontractors are never a good thing.
Interview several local carpet cleaners before making your decision. When you are done with the interviews, hire the one that you have the best feeling about.
